Campaign: Think Beyond the Label

   
 

On February 1, 2010 a new nation-wide campaign was launched to encourage employers to re-think their attitudes towards hiring individuals with disabilities. Think Beyond the Label uses humor to dispel many of the mistaken notions that employers hold with respect to individuals with disabilities in the workforce. Advertisements will be running in all national media formats - television, radio, newspapers and magazines.

View the first television commerical. For more information on this national campaign, visit the Think Beyond the Label website.
